FAQ
I'm probably just overlooking a configuration setting, but I was wondering
if it's possible to automatically BCC (preferably) or CC non-members when
their postings to a list are distributed.

I'm on a college campus, and we're using Mailman to distribute messages to
specific groups (students, faculty, etc.). Often, students will send a
message to faculty/staff members ... or vice versa ... so they aren't part
of the list membership.

Of course, since all postings are moderated and require approval, the list
admins could just notify the sender when a message has been distributed. But
I was looking for an automated method.



Thanks,

Jason

    Nope, not without source code modifications. Feel free to go to
    the SourceForge Mailman Request For Enhancement page at
    <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id3&atid50103> and file
    an RFE.

    Of course, there's no guarantee that any such feature will ever
    be added, so if you've got a patch that would provide the necessary
    functionality then that will greatly increase the chances that this
    RFE will be addressed. But, this is the only way to get the requests
    into the system, so that they can be tracked.
